BATG’s final episode sat at 588,000 viewers, before rising sharply as Lachlan and Keira were crowned the winners.

The pair received the most votes from previously eliminated contestants and were paired by host Sophie Monk early on during the season. 

But the happy ending wasn’t enough for the reality dating series, as the Tokyo Olympics annihilated the competition on the free-to-air stations.

The evening block for Seven’s Olympics coverage attracted 1.143 million watchers and then fell slightly to 1.016 million throughout the night. 

The evening session for the Olympics also came out on top for all three key age demographics.    

In comparison to non-news and non-Olympics-related programs, Beauty and the Geek lost out to Seven’s The Chase Australia, who managed 772,000 metro viewers.

The results have translated to Seven attaining a solid 50% of the audience share for the night.  

Nine was far behind in second place with 20.1% share.
